A topic on the Gold Apollo 11 tribute Speedmaster BA 145.022 as I have been trying to find out which of the 35 astronauts who received such a Gold Speedmaster, actually have worn the chronograph... On November 25, 1969 during a banquet in the Warwick Hotel - Houston, Omega gifted a Gold BA 145.022 to 23 astronauts and 3 posthumously to the familes of Virgil Grissom (#4), Edward White (#10) and Roger Chaffee (#28) who died in the Apollo 1 fire January 27, 1967. The Astronaut Appreciation Dinner menu paper listed 22 astronauts, with their military rank, as honored guests... Chief of the Astronaut office Donald Deke Slayton was not on this list. I would like to see some photographs taken during this event... Another 9 astronauts received their Gold BA 145.022 in 1972 and 1973, although I couldn't find a precise date nor events when these Gold Speedmaster chronographs were awarded to Apollo 14 to 17 astronauts. So far, out of 32 astronauts, I have only found 13 astronauts actually wearing their Gold Speedmaster wristwatch: Those with a * behind their name, wore it during training for Apollo or Skylab missions #3 Alan Shepard #7 Leroy Cooper #12 Charles Conrad * #15 Frank Borman #16 David Scott #17 Neil Armstrong #18 Eugene Cernan * #21 Edwin Aldrin #26 Alan Bean * #27 Donald Slayton #1001 Stuart Roosa #1002 Edgar Mitchell #1003 James Irwin ... The search continues, I believe Apollo 15 LMP James Irwin was wearing his Gold BA 145.022 in this August 24, 1972 photograph as he retired as a USAF Colonel... but I need the dates in 1972 and 1973 when the last 9 Gold BA 145.022 were awarded anyone knows these dates ? . What do You think... was James Irwin wearing his Gold BA 145.022 in this August 24, 1972 photograph ?
